Our revamped patent and utility model services
Between 6 and 7 February 2023, we launched the following five new or revamped online services.
Patent Information Service
Use the Patent Information Service to search for Finnish patent and utility model applications and registrations, supplementary protection certificates, and European patents in force in Finland. The new service replaces our previous patent and utility model databases (PatInfo, FI-EP, Publication Server, and Pate), which are no longer used. You will find basic details, documents, and information about status, validity and payments in the service.
Industrial Property Gazettes service
The Patent Gazette and Utility Model Gazette will no longer be published on certain days of the month. Instead, the information will be published via our new Industrial Property Gazettes service. The change will speed up the publication of granted patents and utility models, which will be published immediately, rather than waiting for the next issue of the gazette.
The service contains all our industrial property gazettes. The gazettes include a summary of newly granted patents and utility models, as well as registered trademarks and design rights. Trademark and design registrations have been published on the new service since August 2022.
Patent Payment Service and Deposit Account
The Patent Payment Service makes it convenient to pay fees and reduces the number of incorrect payments. You can use the service to view your payment history and your up-to-date payment details. The Patent Payment Service enables companies with a large number of fees to use our new Deposit Account for payments. Companies transfer money into the Deposit Account to pay their patent or utility model fees.
